Red Hot Chilli Pipers, King Creosote, and Astrid have been added to the line-up for the 21st HeCelt Festival based on Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland from Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th of July 2016.
HebCelt previously announced its ‘coming of age’ event will also feature Scottish rock legends Runrig, international singing star Julie Fowlis, American ‘rockgrass’ band Hayseed Dixie and multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer John McCusker, as well as Orkney four-piece Fara and folk trio Talis.
HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan, said, "The programme for 2016 is really coming together now and we are excited about the quality and diversity of the line-up. We have a great mix of well-established favourites and are bringing a great array of new acts, very much in keeping with our aim of supporting emerging talent and introducing our audience to new music.
"The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a great festival act and real crowd pleasers and King Creosote is one of Scotland’ s best known and loved singer songwriters. Astrid continue to have a great following both in Lewis and further afield and it’s great to see them back playing, especially on home turf. Other acts we are announcing today bring their own unique qualities and styles which will add up to a fantastic 21st anniversary HebCelt."
Further headliners will be announced soon. As well as the music there's also a full programme of family entertainment, as well as a street arts programme with walkabout, workshops and fire shows.
The prices range from £87 (£74 for concessions and £20 for children under 14 with under 5s going free) for the main arena events.
